The Fall Session

At the New York City Council, we have begun the Fall session. With a new session, we start a new period of policy, planning, and initiatives.

We are planning a number of information sessions regarding education and employment, as well as unrolling a heavy legislative agenda. We will keep this blog updated on these matters. In the meantime, I urge you to take note of our latest legislative bills-

Int. 685- A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the City of New York, in relation to the human rights law and housing. See here:

Int. 805- A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to providing paid family leave to private employees. See here:


And we're not the only ones getting to work this fall! The beloved Habana Outpost is hosting a Habana Work’s Park(ing) Day Spot on Friday, September 19. Habana Works is participating in Park(ing) Day, the international event that reclaims hundreds of parking spots in 50 cities around the world and transforms them into engaging public spaces for one day each year. Locally, this day is coordinated by Transportation Alternatives.

Where: NW corner of Fulton St and South Portland St., Fort Greene, Brooklyn (C train to Lafayette, G train to Fulton)

When: Friday, September 19, 11am to 5pm

I would also like to mention the Greene Hill Food Coop, which is a food coop for Fort Greene and Clinton Hill, currently in the planning stages and always looking for more member involvement:

matias, our office is aware of the Fort Greene Hill Food Coop, and we're also in the midst of creating a "green" agenda from our end. There will be more to state on these issues later in the fall from our office.
